The Knox Club is proud to announce that we will be holding our annual Fundraising Golf Day on Sunday 25th March 2018.  Our aim is to help raise funds for the purchase of an additional 3D mammography machine for Maroondah Hospital’s new Breast and Cancer Centre.

Eastern Health are currently conducting research on the accuracy of 3D screening and an additional machine would increase the number of participants in this study to 15,000.  Early research suggests that 3D mammography can detect up to 40% more cancers, however 3D screening is not currently covered by Medicare.  The results of this research could determine changing standard breast screening practice from 2D to 3D and could enable Eastern Health & other public health providers the ability to offer 3D screening to all women free of charge

This day is designed to have fun whilst raising much needed funds.  We invite teams of 4 players to challenge in our Annual Charity Golf Day to help raise funds for the fight against cancer and to help those affected by cancer.  The event will be 4 Ball Ambrose with hit off times commencing approximately 6.30am from 1st and 10th tees.  Social handicaps are welcome and breakfast will be available at the course prior to the game.  Following the game there will be lots of fun back at the Knox Club with presentations, raffles and great spinning wheel prizes.

Our Charity Golf Day has been held annually in conjunction with the Cancer Council Victoria for the last sixteen years.  During this time our fundraising efforts have raised a total of $435,000 which has been donated towards cancer research. Last year the Knox Club Committee elected to donate $20,000 towards Eastern Health’s Coolheads campaign.  The aim of this project was to raise funds for two scalp cooling machines that reduce the hair loss (and dignity) for women with breast cancer undergoing chemotherapy at Maroondah Hospital’s Day Oncology Unit.
